SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – Several brands of dog food are being recalled because of excessive amounts of vitamin D.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, but too much of it can cause serious health problems such as kidney failure or death.
Testing found that samples of the dog food in question contained as much as 70 times the safe level.
The list of recalled dry dog food products provided by the FDA includes Nutrisca, Natural Life Pet Products, Sunshine Mills, Sportsman’s Pride, Lidl (Orlando Brand), Kroger and Elm Pet Foods. Click on the FDA website to see the entire list.
Excess vitamin D can cause vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling and weight loss. If your dog has eaten the recalled brands and is showing these symptoms, contact a veterinarian.
